Here’s a few ideas for preparing a few everyday products in ways which you’ve probably never tried before.
1. Coffee ice cubes: a great alternative for getting your caffeine fix in the summer months.
- 200ml milk
- 50 ml of water
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1 cc of sugar
- 1 tbsp instant coffee (optional)
- 70g dark chocolate (66%)
- 600ml milk

2. The best egg, bacon and cheese sandwich in the world.
3. Frozen bananas dipped in white chocolate.
4. A chocolate vase made using your own hands.
5. A romantic breakfast for two, with eggs and sausages.
To make these sausage and egg hearts first you have to cut a sausage in half while leaving a bit of it uncut. Afterwards bend the sausage and bring its two ends together to form a heart shape. Secure the ends with a toothpick so that the sausage is not deformed. Make more in the same way. Then take some oil in a pan and add the sausage hearts to it. After some time add eggs to each heart shape and let it cook on medium heat. Put the lid on pan so that the eggs are cooked from above too. Once the eggs are cooked serve them with salad or bread whatever you like. Bon appétit!
6. A quick way to make croissants even tastier than usual: add some chocolate paste!
7. A baked potato with an egg, cheese and vegetables.
To make these delicious and tempting baked egg potato bowls first you have to bake potatoes. Cut their top part when cooled down and scoop out the flesh to create bowls. Brush some melted butter inside the bowls and add grated cheese. Top with any smoked meat and then add an egg in each bowl. Sprinkle salt and pepper, add a bit of cheese and green onions. Bake in the oven until the eggs are cooked and cheese is melted.
8. An interesting way to bake apples.
9. The perfect zebra cake.
Zebra cake though looks hard is very easy to make. To start making this cake first you have to make a cake batter. Once it is done you have to take two bowls and divide the batter into two equal parts. Add cocoa or chocolate powder to one part and mix well to form a brown batter and leave one part as it is. Then start pouring both the batters one by one in small amounts with care as shown. Do not disturb the cake during this process so that the brown and yellow layers are not deformed. After you are done with pouring put the cake into the oven and let it bake nicely. When you will cut the cake zebra pattern will be clearly visible. Enjoy baking!
10. Combining jelly and fruit.
To make these jelly shots you will require jelly mix packs in any flavors of your choice and oranges. First cut oranges in half and scoop out their flesh. If you don’t want to waste the orange flesh then the best would be use those shells that are left after you make orange juice. Then mix jelly powder in hot water and pour in each orange cup one by one. Let them set in fridge and cut into wedges when ready. You can create a rainbow of wedges using an assortment of jelly flavors. Kids are surely going to love them.
11. A more artistic version of the classic sausage roll.
1 package Pillsbury™ Simply…™ refrigerated rustic French bread
6 hot dogs
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Ketchup or mustard for serving
1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll out Pillsbury French bread on a lightly floured surface into a long rectangle at least 14 inches long and 8-10 inches wide. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 8 long strips.
2. Transfer the strips to a baking sheet that has been lightly oiled. Fold back every other strip (four total). Place a hot dog on the flat strips, then place the folded four strips back over the hot dog, starting a weave pattern. Next, fold back the other four strips over the hot dog and place a second hot dog down. Continue to weave all six dogs into the bread in this fashion.
3. When all the hot dogs are woven into the dough, trim off any extra dough from the edges and try to space out the dough evenly over each dog. Then brush with melted butter and sprinkle with coarse salt to give the bread a pretzel taste.
4. Bake the weave at 375°F for 25 minutes until it’s perfectly browned.
5. Let the weave cool for 5 minutes and then chop it into six squares. Serve with ketchup and/or mustard.
12. If you combine condensed milk and jelly, you’ll end up with an unusual but delicious dessert.
